Allah Las Do Sunny Psychedelic Pop in "In The Air," Lead Single off New Album

SoCal beach bum band Allah Las, now sans hyphen, know how to transmogrify their home state’s pale blue skies and deep blue waters into sun-kissed guitar licks that channel the Beach Boys (obviously) and other psychedelic-pop touchstones. In their new single “In The Air,” they tackle the innocent joys of hot-air balloon flight in typically chipper fashion.

The brief song (only two minutes!) has a backbeat you could skip to, creamy multi-tracked harmonies, and catchy, reverb-heavy guitar riffs: the elements of a summer pop classic from 50 years ago. The track is the lead single off their forthcoming fourth album, LAHS, which will see them depart from their beloved California to go on a rock odyssey across the globe, a la Khruangbin’s great Con Todo El Mundo.

LAHS is out Oct. 11 on Mexican Summer. Watch the video for “In The Air” below, check out a 2013 Allah Las performance from the Paste archives further down, and don’t miss the LAHS album art and tracklist at the bottom.
